Quotes by Jasper Johns
Take an object. Do something to it. Do something else to it.— Jasper Johns
As one gets older one sees many more paths that could be taken. Artists sense within their own work that kind of swelling of possibilities, which may seem a freedom or a confusion.— Jasper Johns
I’m not sure what ‘coming out right’ means. It often means that what you do holds a kind of energy that you wouldn’t just put there, that comes about through grace of some sort.— Jasper Johns
Do something, do something to that, and then do something to that.— Jasper Johns
One wants one’s work to be the world, but of course it’s never the world. The work is in the world; it never contains the whole thing.— Jasper Johns
